Dear Sir
The heart rate is dependent upon the level of exercise and your age. If your age is ~30 years, your heart rate of 190 bpm at exercise level of 11.4 METS will be considered normal response. But the occurrence of chest pain and dizziness on PT (physical training ) is not normal and you must see your specialist at priority.
